Happy St. Valentine's Day everyone!

This morning at church, the priest told us the story of how Valentine's day came about.
Apparently in the time of the reign of Claudius 2nd., Claudius decided he didn't want his army of men to get married because he wanted them to be totally dedicated to the army. When Valentine saw the distress these young men suffered he went against Claudius and married them in secret.
When Claudius found out, he had Valentine Tortured and beheaded. Not a good story but  if it's true, it goes to show what people would do for love! (This is a short version Google it if you want to find out more).
I hope you all had a super Valentine's day and wishing you all much love!

Happy Chinese New Year as well!

(We had a beautiful dragon, dance in Church this morning). They put on a good show!
I hope you like the clipart, I got off the net free, (Thanks to the generosity of the people who create them and give them away). There sure are some talented people out there!!!
